These are a few pieces from my second year in fine arts at Massey in Wellington – can’t for the life of me find any of my earlier work, I suspect it was stored on some unlabelled cd chucked in a box in our storage unit, ah well!
Give and Take – Photographic cutouts, mounting pins, deep set white glassless frames.
Contextual studio “Sex, Politics and Religion” 3.0…. This is the outcome of the first semester of contextual studio,  looking at compromise and change related to pregnancy and the role of responsibility and lifestyle choice.  What I personally had to give up, but what I also gained. Working through a kind of loss, and coming to terms with my new role to be.

Nurture – Sculpting wax, candle wick.   Sculpture class 2.1 second assignment ‘The Body’.
The above are two works from a contextual studio brief entitled ‘Remake 3.1’ – We were put into collaborative groupings of two to three people and the goal was to remake each of our last semesters work as one new combined work – our collaborative work is entitled ‘The Pink Response’, and these works are two of my personal responses within this brief.
Domestic flowers – Rubber gloves, Sanitary napkins, Dish brush, Kitchen sponge, Acrylic paint, Fake pearls and Birth control pills.
